Many of our fundraisers have a personal connection to Hannahs, and have witnessed first-hand the work we do with those with a range of disabilities.They choose to raise money for us to help us continue providing the high quality services at both Ivybridge and Seale-Hayne, that support their family or friends. Others have become part of our Hannahs family from visiting our Seale-Hayne site and have been inspired to support us through challenge events and community fundraising.
Joining a Hannahs Supporter Group offers the chance to build closer links with the charity, whilst forming new friendships and making a real difference. On average, our Ivybridge Supporter Group raises £5,000 a year from doing so many different activities: from hosting fashion shows, lunches to manning cake stands at local agricultural shows. Each Supporter Group has its own character and ideas for raising money.
